Visit Website


Come enjoy a southern hospitality and a relaxing stay in this country Cajun home; 30 min. from the N.O. airport, 10 min. from Thibodaux, 15 min. from Houma. Near airboat, swamp tours, and plantation homes. Rest in the hammock and watch the bayou flow slowly by or rock in the comfortable rockers on the back porch. Watch the water birds searching the floating vegetation for food. Catch sight of a bald eagle soaring over the bayou where fish are jumping. Catch a glimpse of an alligator raise its head above water or an egret perched on the wharf. Hear the sounds of birds, crickets, owls, and bullfrogs.

Hospitality and Comfort on Historic Bayou Lafourche

5 on February 24, 2015

Chateau on the Bayou B & B was the perfect oasis during my visit to historic Bayou Lafourche. Located only 35 miles due south of New Orleans, Ms. Claudette's B & B provided the rest and relaxation needed after fun days filled with touring this gorgeous historic region of south Louisiana. Short distances away are antebellum plantations including Oak Alley, Houmas House, Laura Plantation and many others. The region is filled with massive 200 plus year old oak trees, alligator and swamp tours, airboat tours, lakes for great fishing, the resort town of Grand Isles, the historic town of Thibodeaux and numerous destinations that celebrate Louisiana's rich cultural heritage. The accommodations at Chateau B & B are exceptional. The large comfy bedrooms are pristine as are the clean bathrooms and great living space with welcoming large kitchen and breakfast area. Ms. Claudette prepares the best breakfast south of New Orleans. The wrap-around front porch and outdoor bayou-side location features areas for relaxing and enjoying a Louisiana sunset. Ms. Claudette provides hospitality with a capital H. I highly recommend a multi-night stay at Chateau on the Bayou B & B. Steve Albert, New York, New York

Great B&B

I had the pleasure of staying at the Chateau on the Bayou B&B for a week. Ms. Claudette was a wonderful host and bent over backwards to make sure I was taken care of and the accommodations were top notch yet very affordable. The house is beautiful, very quaint and full of southern charm. Ms. Claudette made me feel very comfortable and right at home. Because the Chateau is located just a few miles from the highway, it was easy to drive around to neighboring towns and even north to New Orleans. I definitely would recommend taking time to visit with Ms. Claudette and enjoy a stay at the Chateau on the Bayou B&B. I hope to visit again some day!

Great food, relaxing, and kitties!

My husband and I needed a place to stay for two nights just before the end of our vacation. We wanted to be fairly close to New Orleans but still out on the bayou. Claudette had been planning to take a break from having guests, but she graciously took us in. She was so helpful, providing all kinds of information about what to see and do in the area, where to eat, etc. And her breakfasts were absolutely scrumptious--perhaps the fluffiest omelet and most awesome French toast I have ever had. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the back porch and would have spent significant time in the hammock if we had stayed longer! We bathed in the claw-foot tub; water was hot and water pressure was very good (not true of all B&Bs we stayed in on this trip). We were missing our own cats, left at home, but Baby and Minu, a little shy at first, warmed up to us and invited us to give belly rubs and ear scratches. We highly recommend A Chateau!

Excellent B&B, bien positionné dans le triangle Thibodeaux, Houma, NO et situé dans un environnement très agréable sur le bord du bayou. Accueil très chaleureux et convivial de son hôtesse, une étape sympathique à recommander.

2 couples of French tourists ... Charmed !

Claudette, hostess, is a breathe of fresh air and sunshine combined. Knowledgeable about the area, kind and helpful. Explained about need for shower, she made calls to switch rooms for our arrival date. Attentative to details. Restaurant suggestions excellent. Plantation tour, package for airboat ride & swamp tour all a Lousiana historical flavor. See you again, Claudette! Blessings, The Jaques

First B&B experience for us and a sheer delight!

This is a beautiful home away from home and we look forward to many more visits. Claudette the Host is Gracious, Charming and eager to share her beautiful home and its 'interesting history. Everything is clean, well maintained, convenient to all of the wonderful sites and good eating to enjoy when you visit South Louisiana. We stayed for two nights while visiting family nearby and so happy to find this in lieu of motels.

A Bayou Country Delight

5 on July 01, 2012

My husband and I have enjoyed staying in a number of B&Bs while traveling in the US so we were thrilled to discover this wonderful place so close to home. A Chateau on the Bayou is beautiful and Claudette Pitre is everything you might desire in a host. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, spotless, and very nicely furnished. Breakfast is incredible. And this peaceful, relaxing spot is just minutes away from some of the most interesting sights and people in the country. We cannot wait to go back!!

Great bayou experience

Thank you Claudette. Your website doesn't give justice to the lovely peaceful setting, with frogs and crickets, fish jumping and such great meals. Thanks for organising boat trips and fishing. Wanted to stay on, but it was booked. Next time

Best experience of my life!!!
